CHEHALIS, Wash. – Authorities in Washington are searching for a 33-year-old mother who was reported missing this past weekend.

Family members and friends say Elizabeth Pham may be suffering from postpartum depression, saying she was acting strange and “confused” before her disappearance.

Investigators believe Pham left her vehicle on Saturday, which was found unlocked with the keys inside on I-5.

They say she went to a truck stop, where witnesses say she tried to get a ride with a truck driver.

However, an employee stopped her and called a taxi for her.

Once the taxi arrived, Pham was dropped off in Castle Rock, where she stopped at a restaurant.

According to Q13, witnesses say a woman matching Pham’s description was seen sitting under the overpass, staring at the Cowlitz River.

However, that was the last time anyone reported seeing her.

A makeup bag that belonged to Elizabeth was found in Castle Rock where a fisherman found it downriver from where she was last seen.

John Pham, Elizabeth’s husband, told investigators that his wife has never acted this way in their 15 years of marriage.

“I’m very, very sick with worry,” Pham told Q13. “No matter what, we want her back. No matter what.”
